    ROTF Leader Prime and Jetfire. If I had known the HA line would have taken off like it did I would have so picked the up. Also the random Classics figures like Sideswipe, Sunstreaker and Prowl.

    Pretty much a similar situation, whenever Masterpiece Prime would come out, even with reissues I was ignoring it for whatever reason.

    Also did the same with Masterpiece Starscream, just never bought it figuring the line would end like how the Alternators line ended and they'd never keep making more.

    Today actually. I went in TRU and there were 3 MP Rodimus. I did'nt get one cause I've never been impressed with it, but since then I keep thinking about going back and getting one.

    Right now for me it's the Masterpiece Rodimus. There are like 30 at my nearby toysrus since last week monday and some still haven't sold. I had a chance to buy it, but keep passing.

    Back when the Classics line just started was when I just returned to Canada with a lot of KO nostalgia from China. When I saw the four 1st wave Classics, Bumblebee, Astrotrain, Rodimus, and Starscream, I didn't think I deserved them all (not really in the habit of treating myself to anything). But my GF convinced me to just buy them all -- as good as any Christmas!!! I took those things with me everywhere, even back to China next time I went.

    But at around the same time there was also Masterpiece Optimus Prime at Toys R Us. At the time, I thought $50 was too much..... yeah. Shitty.

    The G1 eHobby figures. I should have bought them when they were first released. Now some of them are going for way too much money. The grey/purple Astrotrain just cost me a small fortune. Ahhhh... :/

    Cybertron Galvatron (because I wasn't collecting leader class at the time) and a second Classics Devastator set from WM when they were on clearance for $12. That could have been my desk set for work.
